The critial political action committee known as End Citizens United is continuing its fight to purge the American political process for the corruption brought on by big corporate money being injected into the campaigning process. Among the latest news out of the End Citizens United camp is the release of the twenty Congressmen from the Republican Party that the organization will focus on getting voted out during the 2018 election cycle. This twenty big money receiving Republicans has shown that they favor the desires of special interest groups in place of the well being and best interests of the constituents that they are elected to represent. They have demonstrated this be backing legislative matters that primarily benefit the entities that are supplying them with campaign funding. Notable Senators such as Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan are among this list of twenty individuals who have shown that they are more concerned with the wants to their campaign funders than the well being of those who elected them into the office, to begin with.

The fact is that there has been an overall trend for corporate money to start working its way down into state elections where once it was primarily a trend that was involved in Presidential races. End Citizens United is as passionate about supporting candidates who refuse big money as it is about opposing candidates who are taking it. Candidates like Beto O’Rourke are a shining example of what a candidate can accomplish without taking PAC money at all. It certainly appears that longtime incumbent Ted Cruz, well known for taking big money, is feeling the heat on this particular race with O’Rourke looking to put the longtime Senator in major jeopardy of being ousted. At any rate, End Citizens United plans to continue to fight the good fight in its goal of making the American political process a more honest one.
